Verse 1

What child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing

Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the son of Mary

Verse 2

Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding
Good Christian, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading

Nails, spear shall pierce him through
the cross be borne for me, for you

Hail, hail the Word made flesh
the Babe, the Son of Mary

Verse 3

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come, peasant, king, to own Him
The King of kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

Raise, raise the song on high
The virgin sings her lullaby

Joy, joy for Christ is born
The babe, the Son of Mary
